Want something light, entertaining, and full of topical humor? I recommend Shear Madness at the Kennedy Center.

It's one of things I love to take visitors to see, but today I had so much fun I thought "why is it I only go to see this when I have guests?"

It really is very amusing, and the best part is you can see it many times because each time the plot is slightly different. It's an audience involvement play. What happens during the audience involvement then determines various plot changes. Basically, it's a murder mystery and any of the characters can potentially end up being the murderer.

Just a little tip I thought I'd pass on. And when you go, take the Orange Line and get off at Foggy Bottom. The walk from the metro stop to the Kennedy Center is very pretty.

Sounds like a great time! I'm taking my 5yo to see Mary Poppins at the Kennedy Center next month. I wasn't sure which Metro stop to take. Thanks for that piece of info too!

When you get off at the Foggy Bottom metro, make an immediate right and walk through the patio for GWU. Theat takes you to New Hampshire Ave., which is a pretty little street with cute houses and gardens. You walk two blocks, then have to walk around a circle in front of the Watergate (which has some traffic, so hold onto the 5-year-old). After you pass the Watergate you'll see the Kennedy Center. Any road you walk down will take you to it.

Also, if this is your first time to the Kennedy Center and it's a pretty day, bring a camera. The views from the terrace deck are outstanding, especially on sunny days when the river has plenty of kayaks, colorful sails, and all sorts of boats.

I like to drive to the Kennedy Center. It's a quick drive from VA if you go at the right time of day.

You know, in all the years I've here, I've never driven there. But other people have said that same thing, that it's a pretty easy drive. How much does it cost to park there?

$20, effective the first of this month.

But it's easy and quick - we drove and parked there when we saw Phantom of the Opera.

I've seen it!! It was years ago in Chicago, though.. Maybe RR would like it. (Not meant offensively or anything - I'm being totally serious.)

LOL, I totally agree. I think he'd love it too--can't you see him having a lot fun grilling the suspects?

I saw all the families coming out of Mary Poppins while we were there. Looked like the kids all enjoyed it a lot.
